Serving The Needs Of Disabled Adults And Children

A disability can put you on the sideline temporarily or permanently. It can prevent you from working or maintaining your standard of living. If a debilitating injury, illness or permanent condition prohibits you from earning an income, it is important to seek the counsel of a Social Security Disability (SSD) lawyer who understands the benefits you might be entitled to and the complex process of obtaining benefits from the Social Security Administration.

Navigating And Conquering Legal Complexities

In Michigan, The Law Offices of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, P.C., regularly assesses the needs of adults and children who qualify for SSD, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and appeals for adverse benefits. At our Clinton Township offices, Ms. Zahodnic can help you and your family evaluate whether your claim meets the qualifications for disability benefits. Ms. Zahodnic is a registered nurse and a former nursing instructor for Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University nursing students rotating through the intensive care unit. This experience allows her to understand the medical, emotional and everyday needs of disabled individuals and their families.

We have the medical knowledge at our fingertips to properly prepare claims and to appeal benefits decisions. The time-consuming and complex application process can be simplified by Ms. Zahodnic’s experience and expeditious actions in the following areas:

  • Initial applications for SSD
  • Appeals for SSD
  • Applying for SSD when workers’ compensation expires
  • Creating a special needs trust for a disabled child
  • Divorce involving a disabled child or a disabled spouse
  • Modifications of wills, trusts and other estate plans

There are many reasons your initial application for disability benefits can be denied, but it is possible that your claim was wrongfully rejected because of lack of proper proof of disability. Our medical knowledge, our relationships with a wide variety of experienced medical experts and our legal experience in the appeal process can work on your behalf. We can investigate, prepare, submit and fight for an effective appeal to the Social Security Administration.
